Where are all of the free books?
They are still there! We’ve just added additional premium titles as well. Better still, every time you open the app, it will check for new books. Look in “recently added” to see the new books in the catalog.
Note: If you see a book that is listed as Plus and is colored green (e.g. Adventures of Huckleberry Finn), click on the title to see both the plus option AND the several free versions available. You may choose whichever version suits your preference.
Why are you selling books inside the app?
In an effort to increase the size of our catalog (per many users’ request), we have begun selling professionally recorded, modern titles (e.g. How to Train Your Dragon). The prices of these books are set by publishers.
Furthermore, in an effort to improve your listening experience, we have also created Plus titles – hand-selected and trimmed for optimum quality. Again, this is just an additional option we are offering our users. All of the free content is still available for download.
